3 helmers’ pix to ‘click at AFM

Kim begins shooting 14th film early next year

Korean sales house Cineclick Asia will unveil projects by South Korean helmers Kim Ki-duk, Kim Jee-woon and Iranian filmmaker Mohsen Makhmalbaf at the American Film Market, which kicks off Wednesday.

Fest veteran Kim Ki-duk will begin shooting his 14th film, “Breath,” early next year. Pic, told with minimal dialogue, paints a love story between a criminal on death row and a woman who befriends him after catching her husband cheating.

Helmer Kim Jee-woon, best known for horror pic “A Tale of Two Sisters” and Cannes selection “A Bittersweet Life,” has developed an idiosyncratic western set on the plains of Manchuria.

“The Good, the Bad, and the Weird” (working title) features local star Song Kang-ho (“The Host”) as “the weird,” and will begin shooting in spring in China, Mongolia and Russia. Cineclick is billing the work as helmer’s most commercially accessible work to date.

Finally, Cineclick has secured rights to Makhmalbaf’s “Two-Footed Horse” after the project won the Cineclick Asia Award at the 2006 Pusan Promotion Plan in South Korean earlier this month.

Story about the unlikely friendship between a poor boy and a rich lame boy who hires him as his “horse” is expected to open production in summer.
